PENSION ALERT!: (March 4, 2009)

The following is from the NYC Pension Fund:

Due to a recent arrest of a New York City Police Pension Fund employee, an identity theft alert has been activated. The Fund does not believe that member information has been compromised. However; by law we are obligated to notify our membership when a possibility exists that their personal information may be in jeopardy. As a courtesy, the fund is providing its membership both active and retired members the opportunity of receiving free credit protection for one year. We are in the process of mailing the attached letter and credit protection information to all affected members.
